However, the price difference isn't "a few hundred" bucks between B&M (even a sale price) and an online vendor. On a 50", it is more like $3,000-$7,000.

David, do I sense a little internet dealer to internet dealer hostility between PlasmaTek and Dell and/or 1800Plasmas? I've seen some pretty good comments about Dell and it looks like 1800Plasmas is getting some good customer comments here too.
Have a great evening all.

The main question you need to ask is: "Where is the Plasma coming from".
Top 2 answers should be Electrograph and ActiveLight. No reputable dealer would keep this a secret because the above mentioned distributors cannot sell to the enduser.
If you bought a Plasma from Dell, it never came from Dell, it came straight from Electrograph's warehouse.
If you bought a Plasma from 1-800-heretoday-gonetommorow, it never came from their office, it came from Electrograph, maybe Active Light.
Point is whether Dell Headquarters is blown to kingdom come, or 1-800*** lives up to the last part of their name, you are still safe. as long as it came from on of these two places. You would still be able to call Electrograph (who has been around way longer than Dell) give them a Serial # and they could completley handle warranty and technical issues.
Finding out what type of relationship a Dealer has with either of these distributing giants will also give you insight. Dealers that have good relationships with distributors can get things done quickly.

Deep Thoughts and Otherwise
1. What is the point of posting a message telling someone "you have a PM" when the PM is clearly going to reach them before they see the post? Isn't that like leaving someone a voice mail message and then sending them a letter saying "I left you a voice mail".
